Pylypchuk, who joined on 1 September, replaces Henri Vuong, who is leaving INREV at the end of September after six years at the helm of the association’s research and market information team to take up a new global role based in London.
With nearly two decades of investment research experience, Pylypchuk moves from investment solutions provider, Fidelity International, where she spent over four years as a Senior Market Analyst. At Fidelity, Pylypchuk oversaw market research for the core European and UK markets, developing new strands of analysis for each region to enhance the investment process and inform strategy.
Prior to this, Pylypchuk spent over a decade as Director of EMEA and subsequently Global Research at CBRE.
Pylypchuk will be responsible for maintaining the quality and seamless delivery of INREV’s research and market insights, with the overarching objective of increasing transparency for investors across Europe and increasingly, globally. She will also play an important role in expanding the breadth and synergy of products and capitalising on INREV’s digital infrastructure to enhance members’ access to research and market insights.
Commenting on the appointment, Lonneke Löwik, INREV CEO, said: “Iryna has a wealth of invaluable experience, with a proven track record of successfully growing the organisations’ research capabilities. Having spoken at several of our events before and as past Chair of INREV’s Research Committee, we know Iryna’s ability to engage with the audience and determination to drive the non-listed real estate industry forward. I’m very pleased that she will continue to share her depth of knowledge and years of investment experience with our members.”
Iryna Pylypchuk, added: “I am humbled to be joining INREV and to be associated with the organisation’s work to improve the accessibility of the non-listed real estate investment industry. Over the years, I have closely followed INREV’s excellent work to help evolve best practices for investors across Europe and have always aspired to do more for the industry. I look forward to contributing my insights and expertise to grow INREV’s research capacity and to continue promoting the European non-listed real estate industry globally.”
During her tenure at INREV, Vuong has played a key role in extending the association’s reach by widening the coverage of research initiatives and building the suite of indices, such as the INREV Asset Level Index and the European ODCE Fund Index, and increasing the robustness of the INREV Fund Indices. Vuong has also been instrumental in the global expansion of the research projects and indices.
Löwik, continued: “We hugely appreciate the work Henri has delivered and I would like to thank her for her significant contribution and dedication to INREV over the past six years. She has worked tirelessly to expand our suite of indices and to promote the research capabilities of INREV. I will miss Henri greatly, but wish her the best of luck in her new role.”
